About me

Providing Effective Legal Strategies for Over 30 Years.  I serve primarily Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas counties and have presented at continuing legal education seminars to assist in educating the legal community.. 


The Law Office of Stephen Bedor is above all a client-centered family law practice. The break-up of a family can be one of the most difficult times in any person's life. You are likely concerned about how your life will change, the time you will have with your children, your financial future, and unsure about the legal process ahead. Taking you through your divorce, child custody proceedings and a variety of other family law matters, the experience and knowledge of Stephen J. Bedor ensures your interests are fully protected.


A Caring and Thoughtful Approach to Family Law.


We understand the importance of building and maintaining relationships with your children; often the focal point of divorce cases. In cases involving children, we encourage the parties to work together finding a solution that everyone can agree upon. You will likely be parenting with your ex-spouse long after your divorce is finalized and your children will benefit from a custody agreement that you and your ex-spouse have created and agreed upon, rather than one that was created by a judge. Our clients appreciate our law firm's dedication to creative and cooperative methods of dispute resolution.


We Understand What You Are Going Through


As an experienced lawyer I can provide legal advice on the difficult and emotional issues of divorce, child custody or parenting time as well as other family law matters, including modifications of existing spousal support (alimony) or child support and child custody or parenting time arrangements. We will sit down, discuss your legal matter and discuss your options. Office hours are Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 6 p.m., evening and weekends available by appointment. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Extensive Network of Experts

Any divorce or other family law cases require technical or specialized knowledge that is often not directly related to family law itself, but critical for purposes of advising clients and presenting evidence. In fact, working with the right experts may be as important as choosing the right divorce attorney.

Stephen J. Bedor has established relationships with knowledgeable, experienced, and respected experts in various fields including tax, financial planning, parenting investigation, private investigation, actuarial services, business valuation, employment benefits valuation, and real estate valuation.
